EL GOUNA » Environment in el Gouna

  • Posted September 15, 2015

    El Gouna has been officially recognized as Egypt's most environmentally-friendly holiday destination.
    El Gouna management has worked hard in cooperation with local hotels, businesses, residents and visitors to maintain, protect, and preserve its unique environment. The town’s environmental programs and grassroots environmental organization paved the way for several awards, including the Green Globe and Travelife, and led to El Gouna’s selection as the pilot location for the Green Star Hotel Initiative. In recognition of the success of the initiative, in 2014 El Gouna was granted the Global Human Settlements Award for being a Global Green Town . This award is sponsored by the United Nations Environment Program and is given to towns displaying substantial measures and efforts in progress within the field of environmental sustainability.
